Question about 2000 Toyota ECHO
I have some issues with the central locking system. 1. Sometimes while driving, the central locking unlocks by itself. This seems to happen when turning the car, driving over speed bumps, or just driving on a straight road for no reason at all. 2. Also sometimes when using the remote control to lock the car, the locks pop up by themselves immediately afterwards. 3. The rear door central locks don't work sometimes, they have to be manually locked before locking the rest of the car. What is causing these problems and how can it be fixed?

It sounds like you may be having multiple issues at the same time,
as to #3, after 15 years, the locks have likely worn out. the rest of it sounds like the relay circuit is the problem. see if you can find a diagram for it and start looking for loose wires/ relays.

SOURCE: Alarm and central door locking.
Replace the alarm control box, it is usually under the driver seat, or in the extreme left corner of the dash. If the box under the driver seat got wet for any reason, expect bizaare things to happen; in any case, replace the box.

somehow the car when on valet mode, go to a alarm shop , they should be able to re arm your car without to much damage to your pocket, or read your cars manual, it might inform you on how to fix the problem.
